Why are Foreign Officers Appointed?
Foreign Officers are appointed in the region of interest by their home country to support prosperity, promote peace, and protect (Pakistani) citizens while encouraging their interests abroad. While there are other duties that foreign officers fulfill, Nadeem’s job description as a secretary at the Embassy of Pakistan in Riyadh matches the above description.
